Prior to the fair, the organizers announced that they will open a brand new art fair in Beijing next year. From the first opening, they bring 29 to 54 and then to 104 galleries, the show gradually expanded to the North, which shows that the determination of positioning “small and fine” art fair has conquered the art market.

早在开展之前,主办方就宣布他们明年将在北京启动一个全新的艺术博览会。从第一届召开之时的29家画廊,到后来的54家,再到如今吸引了104家画廊,展览已逐渐向中国北方推进,也昭示了“小而美”的艺术盛会正以步履坚定之势征服如今的艺术市场。

The compatibility of local art market in Shanghai is very large. There is not only a systematic collection of private art galleries, but also the mass spending power of mass arts, especially the degree of internationalization of art exhibitions is unmatchable by other cities.

上海本地艺术市场的兼容度很大,既有重要的私人美术馆的系统收藏,也有体量不小的大众化艺术消费能力,尤其是艺术展览的国际化程度,是其他城市难以匹敌的。

With the growing consumer buying power and economy in China, people nowadays have higher demands in the quality of life, and eventually will accept works of art more easily.

随着中国经济的飞升,中国消费者的购买能力也逐渐增强。如今人们对高品质生活的需求日益迫切,自然也更容易接受艺术品了。
